Welcome

Hi and welcome to my blog which contains a collection of ride reports and good motorcycle roads to be found along the Australian East coast with a focus on the QLD/NSW border region.

Apologies that some of the road reports and older overseas rides are now looking dated. I started the first Motorcycle Paradise web page in the early 90's and you can still see some of those original photos on here that were scanned from paper photos at the time.

I might eventually update these older stories however this is a personal travel blog so I like to maintain some of the history. There is more recent road info and photos buried in the tour articles and one day ride reports.

Thanks for dropping by.

This is Australia

And this is my last ride report on Australian roads for a long time.I have sold the CB1100 and I am relocating overseas permanently. I had planned a big farewell ride but weather cut it short. That’s the bad news. The good news is I have new riding to look forward to in Asia, Europe and North America. Until then take care and enjoy your riding.

  1. Sorry to see this end and hoping that the two wheel fever will rise up once again for you and you will just have to hit the road and tell us about your adventures. God bless you and keep you safe our friend!

    This isn't the end. It's just the beginning. There are new roads just waiting to be discovered and ridden. Your blog could contain multi continent rides.

    Goodluck with your future endeavours and stay safe mate.

  4. The news is a tad bittersweet Warren. I've really enjoyed your reviews and reports as well - and it really has been over years. Although the gaps between posts were getting bigger I was still keen to read your latest offerings. I'll miss that.
    On the plus side it sounds like there's travel and adventure on the horizon... I'm sure there's a few of us who wish we had the ticker to bite the bullet and take such a big step.
    Best wishes for the future mate, whatever it holds... and ride safe.

  5. Thanks for sharing this body of information I.C.. It is the best blog of it's type and was the main inspiration for me to start riding for the first time in 2008.
    Living in SE Queensland it is especially relevant to me and I've enjoyed many of the routes you documented.
    Many thanks and best wishes for the future.

  8. Like other readers, I look forward to seeing some reports form Europe, Asia and NA. Perhaps you can give us some pointers for when some of us decide to head over that way.

    Good Luck
